Hi, I'm Steve! I'm a giant, friendly teddy-bear-wolf-thing. I'm a former university prof, currently working as a writer, consultant, and private tutor. I live in the Pittsburgh-area.

When I was in college I started with a comp sci major and minor in math. When I finished 5 years later, I had a math and comp sci double-major, and a philosophy and theatre double-minor. I went to grad school around the time of the dot-com bubble-burst, and got a MSci in comp sci, and got into teaching. 10 years later I went back to school for an MDiv in theology, and ended up going back to teaching comp sci. I'm in my 40's and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

I'm married to @artemis, @owashii, and @tabitha, and I'm the luckiest wuff ever because I have the bestest partners ever. =^w^=

I've a wide variety of hobbies and interests, including hardware hacking, video games, hording books and vintage tech, and sewing/costuming. I use Ubuntu, Pop!_OS, Kali, and Windows 11.

:vim: is better than emacs or nano. There, I said it.​

Hi there. Unfortunately I have to make another one of these as the end of the month comes up and I have bills I gotta pay off. I have cardiologist bills from the hospital, meds my insurance doesn't cover, and more.

I'm still in a bad situation at home and need all the help I can to get out, but until then I need help paying for food, outstanding bills from my old place, anything.
